Our licensing costs, yearly, are just under $15,000. The licensing that we have is based upon what we need to do more than anything else. We have a URL categorization license and an SSL decryption license. As far as limits on the amount of traffic go, I'm not aware that our license is built that way. Outside of the cost for the devices, there are no additional costs to the standard licensing fees. Your initial cost of acquisition is obviously going to be more than $15,000, but the cost of ownership is around $15,000 for the version and the licensing that we have.

When you purchase the equipment, you purchase the licensing and warranty. It's all fairly standard. We haven't been caught with anything surprising.

Our boxes are only dedicated to the SSL operation. We only have a subscription license for them because some of the URL categories need to be bypassed, such as banks or healthcare access.
